Covering every plant in Gibraltar Botanic Gardens as part of GibraltarpediA[edit]

I help run a project called GibraltarpediA, we are trying to cover as much as possible in Gibraltar in as many languages as possible. The project is based on MonmouthpediA, where we created 550+ new articles in 30 languages in around 4 months, Monmouth became the world’s first Wikipedia town.

As part of GibraltarpediA we aim to cover every plant in the Gibraltar Botanic Gardens and create QRpedia codes (a type of bar code your phone can read through it's camera that automatically takes you through to a Wikipedia in your own language) in the garden to give people easy access to the information. As far as I know the first botanic garden to do this. A full list of the plants is available here, I would estimate around half already have some information in English but many have an article in other languages already.

We’ve started the Gibraltar Challenge to reward contributors where you can win books and tshirts etc. We’d really love people from WikiProject Ecoregions to be involved, you can find out more by clicking here.

Many thanks

Delete, redirect or task force? WikiProject Biomes[edit]

I have proposed WikiProject Biomes for deletion (see the MfD), but someone suggested redirecting it to here. Or it could become a task force in this project. Comments? RockMagnetist (talk) 01:13, 25 January 2013 (UTC)

Wikipedia talk:Articles for creation/Tropical Dry Forest[edit]

Hello Ecosystems experts:

This article has been submitted at Afc: Wikipedia talk:Articles for creation/Tropical Dry Forest.

Right now Tropical dry forest redirects to Tropical and subtropical dry broadleaf forests.

I thought that you might want to check this out.

Comment on the WikiProject X proposal[edit]

Hello there! As you may already know, most WikiProjects here on Wikipedia struggle to stay active after they've been founded. I believe there is a lot of potential for WikiProjects to facilitate collaboration across subject areas, so I have submitted a grant proposal with the Wikimedia Foundation for the "WikiProject X" project. WikiProject X will study what makes WikiProjects succeed in retaining editors and then design a prototype WikiProject system that will recruit contributors to WikiProjects and help them run effectively. Please review the proposal here and leave feedback. If you have any questions, you can ask on the proposal page or leave a message on my talk page. Thank you for your time! (Also, sorry about the posting mistake earlier. If someone already moved my message to the talk page, feel free to remove this posting.) Harej (talk) 22:47, 1 October 2014 (UTC)
